Short pieces of advice from books


This issue of Book Freak presents four pieces of advice from Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

Make note of when you surprise yourself
“You are more likely to learn something by finding surprises in your own behavior than by hearing surprising facts about people in general.” 
Control the use of your time to increase happiness
“The easiest way to increase happiness is to control your use of time. Can you find more time to do the things you enjoy doing?” 
Be careful when you make decisions while you're in a good mood
“When in a good mood, people become more intuitive and more creative but also less vigilant and more prone to logical errors.” 
Question your intuition
“Those who avoid the sin of intellectual sloth could be called ‘engaged.‘ They are more alert, more intellectually active, less willing to be satisfied with superficially attractive answers, more skeptical about their intuitions.”
